Current Faculty-In-Residence Karen Jacobs talks about some of the programs she runs for students in the residences.
Faculty In Residence
Our Faculty-in-Residence (FIR) program expands the Boston University classroom by providing a residential experience that is interdisciplinary, innovative, and meaningful. Toward this end, FIRs:
- Serve as role models, resources, and advocates for the students with whom they live and learn;
- Cultivate interactions with undergraduates that empower students to grow, develop, and refine their values;
- Integrate curricular and co-curricular activities across the University’s schools and programs; and
- Blaze trails toward the synthesis of knowledge and experience—trails that are provocative, innovative, collaborative, and emblematic of “One BU.”
